Ellie Cumbo

Ellie works in the voluntary sector,  challenging cuts to legal aid, promoting access to justice and helping lawyers make ethical decisions. She has previously worked for Victim Support and the End Violence Against Women coalition, as well as for charities which rehabilitate offenders. She is passionate about safe, friendly communities and, if elected, will champion partnership working between Southwark Council, the police and St George's residents to prevent crime and anti-social behaviour.

Ellie has lived in Southwark for seven years, enjoying its green spaces, food and culture. She first moved to- and fell in love with- London ten years ago, living just south of Brook Drive and the Imperial War Museum.

Mark Griffiths

I have lived in the Ward since 1987 and also work in the Borough, at The Bede Centre, a day centre for adults with autism and learning disabilities, as a Support Worker. A joyful job but one that has brought me into the daily reality of central government cuts and austerity planning, that has deeply affected our ability to care for and look after these vulnerable people.

So I know, first hand, how important it is that we take a stand against these kind of heartless economic policies, and in the Labour Party, across our Borough and nationwide, we are challenging the Tory mindset of austerity politics, that seeks to divide and diminish local communities, such as ours. We can only defeat austerity by electing Labour politicians, locally and nationally, and leading the fight by example.

A vote for Labour is a vote for a local candidate who deeply cares about the streets we all live in, the schools we send our children to and the state of social care that we are offered.
